Victoria International Marina Announces Concierge Service
VICTORIA - A unique concierge service that will bring Victoria area attractions within easy reach of visiting boaters was unveiled by the new Victoria International Marina during Vancouver's annual boat show.
The new service will offer the services of an on-site concierge team to meet visitor requests. If guests want to tee off from their yacht to an iconic oceanfront golf green, helicopter from their slip to a high-performance motorsport track mere minutes away, or host a VIP reception at the marina, the concierge team will manage every moment of the process.
The service is part of the luxury welcome for guests at this new 28-slip facility, which is designed for superyachts between 65 and 175 feet.
The Victoria International Marina is now in the final stage of construction and will open in May. Therefore, management company Community Marine Concepts was at the Vancouver International Boat Show in January showcasing the new marina's amenities and services.
At the boat show, guests were given the experience of walking through a M&P Mercury yacht using a virtual reality technology, received behind the scenes information on the making of the marina and restaurant, enjoyed a customized coffee compliments of Faebrew Cafe, or entered to win three nights of moorage at the marina.
Of the 28 slips:
- Seven are being reserved for daily moorage (with a three-day minimum)
- Seven will be available for lease monthly (with a three-month minimum)
- Seven are available for annual lease; and
- Seven are reserved for long-term tenants, with a 40-year lease
The marina includes an amenity building that features a crew lounge, reception lounge, and business centre. The Boom & Batten, an on-site restaurant partner, will serve international and coastal fusion cuisine.
Additional on-site amenities include state-of-the-art security and technology, Wi-Fi, and the 24/7 concierge services to ensure marina visitors explore all that is available within British Columbia’s capital city and around the region.
The marina will feature slip-level customizable LED lighting, 24” stainless steel cleats spaced every 15 feet, and a four-inch D-bumper finished with polished yellow cedar. Power, in the form of 120 volt, single-phase power, and hook-ups for water and sewer will be available at every slip.
The Victoria International Marina (VIM), is the flagship property for Community Marine Concepts Ltd., which was founded in 2015 to showcase the Pacific marine lifestyle and unmatched hospitality.
